Option :

Answer:Option 1


Parents indulging in sex determination of their unborn child generally do so as they want to keep only a boy child and do away with girl child. So, argument I hold strong. Also, people have right to know only about the health, development and general well-being of the child before its birth, and not the sex. So, argument II does not hold strong.
